I can't believe it but here's another from WSAZ today! Also a felony in WV. Carries a 1-5 year sentence.

HUNTINGTON, W.Va.(WSAZ)-- A Huntington man is facing charges after shooting his mother's dog.

According to the criminal complaint, Justin Pettaway, 25, of Huntington, W.Va., is being charged with wanton endangerment, cruelty to animals, escape, brandishing, persons prohibited from possessing firearms, domestic assault and obstructing.

On Friday, Pettaway asked his mother to buy him a calling card in order to call his wife in South America and his mother refused, according to the complaint.

Pettaway then left the home and came back a short time later while his mother was sleeping. According to the complaint, Pettaway went into her room and shot her American Bulldog with a pistol. His mother immediately woke up, left the house and called 911.

According to the complaint, when West Virginia State Police Trooper Hash got to the home he talked to Pettaway and got the response of "I don't know what you are talking about." Pettaway was placed in the back of the cruiser in order to secure the scene.

While Trooper Hash was standing on the front porch of the home he noticed Pettaway trying to escape the cruiser. According to the complaint, the Trooper Hash rushed to the car and had a short struggle with Pettaway and then placed him in a restraint.

According to the complaint, Pettaway then showed officers where the gun was hidden in a wooded area near 14th Street and 10th Avenue.

Trooper Hash took Pettaway to WVSP Barracks and performed a gun shot residue test, which was sent to the state lab.

While at the barracks, according to the complaint, Pettaway admitted to buying the gun a few months ago and to shooting his mother's dog.

Pettaway is being held in the Western Regional Jail in lieu of $99,000 bail. He is scheduled to be in court on October 9 at 10:30 a.m.
